When using the
user: search operator, search disregards all non-tag content from the question when the post that I own is an answer. This is perhaps better explained with an example.
If I want to find this answer I wrote, I can perform a tag-based
user:me search which will work:
However, the following search will not:
This is because I didn't use "parenthesis" in my answer. It is, however, in the question's title, so I would still expect my answer to come up as a result, and I believe that the old search implementation would agree.
From the logic side of things, I can understand why using the
user: operator might be me saying "I don't want to search in the post body of content I didn't post", but it seems like it should at least incorporate the question's title when looking at answers*.
*Well, at least in this specific case. Now that search shows questions and answers separately, I can see why this would be problematic (and the current behaviour intentional) in the general case.
